Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of legend Elvis Presley, has died. She was 54.
Her mother Priscilla Presley made the announcement today in a statement:
“It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. She was the most passionate, strong and loving woman I have ever known.”
This comes just hours after it was confirmed that Lisa Marie was rushed to the ICU, after she suffered cardiac arrest at her residence in Calabasas early Thursday.
This is just devastating news.
Elvis Presley died of cardiac arrest at age 42. His mother Gladys Presley also died of heart disease at age 46.
Lisa Marie Presley was last seen in public two days ago at the Golden Globe Awards.
Lisa Marie Presley was born on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. She is the only child of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley. She inherited her father’s love for music and began her own singing career in the early 2000s. Her debut album, “To Whom It May Concern,” was released in 2003 and received positive reviews. She released a second album, “Now What,” in 2005. In addition to her music career, Presley has also acted in a few films and television shows, including “CSI: Miami” and “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” She has also made headlines for her marriages, including her brief union with Michael Jackson.
